Chopped and screwed (sometimes called screwed and chopped or slowed and throwed) refers to a technique of remixing hip hop music which developed in the Houston hip hop scene in the 1990s. This is accomplished by slowing the tempo down to between 60 and 70 quarter-note beats per minute and applying techniques such as skipping beats, record scratching, stop-time, and affecting portions of the music to make a "chopped-up" version of the original. A Subgenre called ChopNotSlop created by OG RON C has gotten major attention via Drake's Take Care album and various media outlets

Famous quotes containing the word chopped:
“History is not a book, arbitrarily divided into chapters, or a drama chopped into separate acts: it has flowed forward. Rome is a continuity, called eternal. What has accumulated in this place acts on everyone, day and night, like an extra climate.”
—Elizabeth Bowen (18991973)
